A neighbor has cautioned that a Merseyside senior citizen who has only a little electric heater to heat her decaying home and the equipment to make toast “may not survive the winter.”
Irene lives in deplorable conditions in her Huyton, near Liverpool, residence, as depicted by horrifying images.
Her gas supply was shut off, leaving her without central heating or hot water, so she uses a small electric heater to heat the entire house.
Also, she has no other cooking equipment than her toaster. Other distressing images depict the home’s broken back door, which no longer closes correctly, and a gaping hole in one of her walls.
James Anderson, who operates the plumbing and heating repair company Depher Community Interest Company, shared Irene’s tale online. Depher’s mission is to assist those who live in squalor and cannot afford to maintain their homes.
A Merseyside senior with only a little electric heater to heat her run-down home’may not survive the winter,’ her neighbor said.
Irene is shown eating a piece of toast because her gas supply has been shut off and she has no other way to cook food.
Irene, who resides in Huyton, close to Liverpool, is fragile and dependent on oxygen canisters, making her living conditions highly hazardous.
Mr. Anderson, a native of Liverpool who now resides in Lancashire, is seeking the assistance of Merseyside tradespeople to make Irene’s home habitable.
After inspecting Irene’s residence, he took to Twitter to describe the issue and request assistance. He stated, “This is Irene’s residence. She is an elderly woman in dire need of assistance; her neighbor stated she may not survive another winter without it.
He added, pointing to the small electric heater, “This is her only source of heat.” Her gas supply has been cut off, leaving her without heat or hot water. Irene requires assistance from the community and specialists. With a picture of Irene sitting next to a piece of toast, he added, “Jam on toast is delicious, but not as a whole meal.”
Mr. Anderson stated that Irene’s neighbor was the first to raise concern about her living conditions.
He stated, “We went to the house, and it was fairly awful; it was also frigid because she lacks heating.” Irene has had to adjust to this, but she shouldn’t have to – she nearly cried when we told her we would aid her.
Mr. Anderson founded Depher after the death of his little son several years ago. He desired to assist others in a manner that would have made his kid proud. He stated that in recent years he has witnessed an increase in the number of people living in deplorable conditions due to their inability to repair and maintain their dwellings.
There is also a massive hole in one of her walls, as well as a photograph of her damaged back door, which does not close correctly.
James Anderson (pictured), who operates the Depher Community Interest Company, posted online Irene’s story and heartbreaking photographs of her home.
Mr. Anderson hopes that via donations and offers of assistance from local businesses, work can begin on making Irene’s home once again inhabitable.
Through a Go Fund Me page, he has raised close to £150,000 to help the elderly, the disadvantaged, and the crippled heat their homes.
He now hopes that via donations and offers of assistance from local businesses, work can begin on making Irene’s home once again inhabitable.
He continued, “We need quite a bit of assistance. We require a door installer, a kitchen installer, a carpet installer, plumbers, gas engineers, and someone to provide a skip and assist with property cleanup. We also accept donations from individuals who will aid the initiative.
And offers of assistance have already filled the comments section. One man responded, “James, I’m broke, but I used to be a plasterer.” I wouldn’t mind pulling out my trowel to assist her with any home improvement projects.
One individual stated that they had contributed their £66 government energy refund to Mr. Anderson’s GoFundMe, while others volunteered to bring Irene food and supplies.
